Default Gateway G6-300 memory upgrade problem

i'm tryin to upgrade the memory on my gateway G6-300 (yea its old but it can still play some old games). i have the exact type of ram it supports but for some reason it doesnt work, when i start it up with the new ram (and hte old one still in) it gets past all the bois stuff and when its on the windows loading screen, it says "Windows protection fault, please restart your computer" i've tried puttin the ram in different slots, just usin the new ram, and switchin the old ram to a different slot and put the ram in the old slot.

i now the ram works cuz i had it runnin in my old HP.

any suggestions?
